This is my go to casserole for when my daughter has half the high school spend the night at our house.
It feeds loads of hungry teens and it can be made the night before which is a big bonus!
And the kids would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I didn’t stop them.
Lastly, take about a dozen of whole English Muffins and cut into four pieces.
Place the muffins into a casserole dish, top with melted butter and mix well.
Now top all those goodies with the egg, cream, and cheese mixture.
Make sure you really press the muffins into the liquid because you want the muffins to soak up the liquid.
This is also why I always make this the night before to make sure all that liquid is absorbed into the muffins.
